Does anyone know what determines whether the DRL's turn on or off? I figured it was something like a light sensor but I can't seem to find it.

When it's in drive and the headlights or fog light switches aren't on. I took mine out because I didn't like how they looked

I know this is a tough question. But has anyone heard of/seen a carbon fiber hatch trim panel? I drive a 2010 Impreza Hatch and my hatch trim is painted black but I want carbon fiber, and can't seem to find anything on it. I'm even open to vinyl wrap the damn thing.

You can get carbon fiber wrap on eBay for cheap

Awesome! So no need for another antenna and stuff? The nav works? Did it have satellite radio?

Has anyone installed a light weight pulley crank on their 2008+ 2.5i? I'm debating on getting one, probably the red Perrin one. But I was wondering is there a noticeable difference on throttle response?

My rexy has that! Throttle response is about decades ahead of my 2.5i but, I'm not sure if it's the pulley or both the pulley and just being a WRX.
I think someone on here has done it and can chime in. Just make sure ya go lighter not smaller in size

I don't know anything about tuning haha. What did you get tuned, and how much? Sorry if that question doesn't make sense.
